With 2/3 of the Sky Bet Championship campaign behind them, all 24 sides are now entering the ‘business end’ of their 2017/18 campaign.

It is now that fans will be casting nervous glances and worried thoughts as to where their side will finish come early May. Will it be mid-table mediocrity that beckons, or will it be a slide into the relegation places and a drop into League One?

Will ‘on the fringes’ of the play-off picture lead to a climb in to the play-offs or will it be heartache and missing out? Will it be promotion through the play-off eliminations or is it a case of ‘Premier League here we come’ and going up as one of the top two?

For ALL 24 Sky Bet Championship sides there is a lot to play for, but each passing game from now until May will be a further indication for some as to where they’ll end up.

Now talkSPORT have put the numbers and data into their ‘super computer, and here are the finishing positions that fans will be looking at come early May and the end of game day 46.
